Female Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin Born at Discovery Cove Discovery Cove in Orlando welcomes Dolphin Awareness Month with the birth of a female Bottlenose Dolphin calf. Almost one month old, the dolphin now weighs approximately 20 kg, the same as a mountain bike and is 1.16 meters long. The calf is nursing and bonding with her mother, Coral. She is Coral's second calf and the 29th dolphin to be born at Discovery Cove since it opened in 2000. Coral was also born at Discovery Cove in October 2000.

Mum Coral kept a watchful eye close by as the team conducted the mini check-up. These examinations are part of the general health care given to all animals at Discovery Cove, which ensures the highest standards of care. The Zoological Team is excited to welcome this new addition to the family and is providing around-the-clock care for Coral and her new calf. The veterinary team is checking on the progress of the baby 24 hours a day to monitor her behavior, respirations and nursing. By observing Coral throughout her pregnancy, and now providing supplemental care for the calf, the team is able to gather necessary research to better understand the dolphin gestation process, and it also aids the Animal Rescue Team when rescuing ill, injured, orphaned or abandoned dolphins in the wild. Discovery Cove will soon host a naming contest on its Facebook page where fans can help choose the new baby dolphin's name. Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive tropical day resort where guests experience awe-inspiring encounters swimming with dolphins, snorkeling among rays and tropical fish, hand-feeding exotic birds and relaxing on pristine beaches. For the second consecutive year, Discovery Cove was named the No. 1 amusement park in the world in the 2014 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Amusement Parks and Water - Orlando, Florida, United States - Monday 9th March 2015

Drinking in convenience store parking lot lands Tickle in the bad of a cop car
We’re all for taking your job seriously and devoting your life to your chosen profession but you know, sometimes, you just need to rein it in a little. That can definitely be said of The Moonshiners star Tickle, who appears to have been over-indulging in his illicit alcohol and has found himself arrested at a convenience store, for public intoxication. Hardly the best advert for your trade, is it? Getting arrested for it?
Police in Danville, Virginia announced on Tuesday (March 11, 2013) announced that they had picked up Steven Ray Tickle (known simply as Tickle on the show) at Charley’s Stop and Shop. He was reportedly sat in the parking lot drinking. He had an open container of alcohol and also had the smell of alcohol on his breath. Surprising? No. Illegal? ‘Fraid so, Tickle. He was arrested and released the same day, from Danville City Jail, according to a report from therepublic.com. It’s currently unclear whether or not Tickle has a lawyer to defend him.
The Discovery Channel did not return a call asking form comment on the incident involving the inebriated 35 year old. The show Moonshiners follows the lives of people that brew the illegal alcohol, known as Moonshine. The show’s website describes Tickle as a “hard working still hand who loves moonshine.”
Steven Tickle, star of Discovery's Moonshiners took his job a little too seriously, when he was arrested for public intoxication last Thursday.
It looks like one of the stars of Discovery’s Moonshiners, Steven Ray Tickle, has been taking his job a little too seriously.
Tickle was arrested for public intoxication last Thursday in Danville, Va. He was reportedly apprehended in the parking lot at Charley’s Stop and Shop convenience store, according to the Raleigh Telegram. The officers got flagged down by an unnamed concerned citizen, who spotted Tickle’s suspicious behaviour.
The reality star was reportedly so wasted, that he actually had to be carried into jail by the cops. He must be used to it by now though, since it is certainly not his first time. Tickle’s bio on the Discovery website describes him as “a hard working still hand who loves moonshine” – a bit too much, perhaps. This doesn’t really come as a surprise to anyone, or at least not anyone familiar with the setup of Moonshiners. The reality show focuses on home brewers trying to evade the law and brewing, well, stupidly alcoholic concoctions in the privacy of their own basements. Fun to watch on TV, sure, but if there was ever any doubt about the reality of the format, well, that would be your proof right there. Get it? Proof? Never mind.
Tragedy has struck crew members working on the production of a new Discovery reality TV show, after it was revealed that a helicopter that they were in had crashed in south California at the weekend (February 10, 2013).
According to The New York Times, the crash happened in the early hour of the morning western time and occurred thirty miles outside of Los Angeles at the Polsa Rosa Movie Ranch. The permit that had been given to Eyeworks USA, the production company behind the show, had given them access for filming on the Saturday and Sunday, with details of what they were shooting scarce except for the fact that it was a military-based show.
The production company issued their own brief statement which read “As has been reported, 3 people passed in a helicopter crash while filming a new television reality series with our affiliate Eyeworks USA. We share in our affiliates sympathies for the families and others who are now dealing with this tragedy and send them our warmest regards.” Eyeworks' past TV credits include Flying Wild Alaska, on Discovery, Bar Rescue, on Spike, and Splash, which is a diving competition scheduled to debut on ABC next month.
